The objective of this study is an analysis of the capabilities of pictorial cockpit displays and a definition of the associated sensor and data processing requirements. The study is confined to an examination of raster scan displays. The various missions that are to be studied are Restricted approach and landing Low level, high speed flight Point-to-poiint navaavigation Weapon noon delivery, air-toair Weappon delivery, air-to-grground Tactical air operations and, ASW operations. A large family of displays must be considered from the point of view of both hardware engineering and the design of the pilot-display interface. A hardware review of display media, sensors, and T. V. bandwidth compression techniques has been started and the progress made is reported. The consideration of the pilot-display interface is discussed.
